I often write comedy in a bunch of different forms, I've been writing for some time now, and I've got quite a few to publish. I'm going to publish my articles in sets, though, because it takes a few minutes to publish a single article, and well, I want to give my readers a break.
As I already said, the form of my comedy varies greatly, from screenplay to fake pamphlet to what have you. But this text in specific shows the type of humor I most often write in, which is a harangue. (pronounced ha-rang; familiarize yourself with that word if you haven't already.) There's really no other word flexible enough for it, as rant really isn't fitting, speech doesn't really work (since they're usually as good, if not better, when read than when heard), and lecture's meaning has changed from the colloquial term used in Mark Twain's time. I can't quite call writings like this "articles" or "things" because that's too vague, and could encompass all of my comedy works.
So "Harangue" is the term I generally use for comedy in this format, which ironically has no structure whatsoever. The format is basically straight writing, no exterior design at all. Next time you see a writing like this, impress your pals (or at least be accurate in your vocabulary use) by calling it a "harangue".
